The second those words were out of her mouth, I felt like they were just for me. A perfectly worded reminder to slow down... walk slowly... savor the sights, the moments and the memories. And I did. It was so needed. (I'll share those pictures in just a moment)
I love this quote. It's a balance between the reality of often being inadvertently pushed out of others hectic schedules (being gracious when your feelings are hurt- especially when you feel like people who are one of your priorities aren't able to also make you one of their priorities) and making sure to make others feel special to you amidst the very chaotic schedules we're all keeping this month. Isn't life always a lesson in loving others well?
The holiday season sure puts that one to the test. I just wanted to encourage you and say... "Let's treat others as we want to be treated no matter what!" Amen?
Thankful for... jingle-belling with my kiddos and hubby...My very first date at a place that makes latte art... cute polka dotted plates at Marshalls... A fun ferry ride... being in a favorite place with my favorite guy... a daughter that makes me laugh with her ballet poses... all gifts wrapped and DONE... a sparkly store that reminded me to walk slowly and savor... and a gravesite that reminded me the only thing we can really take with us is the way we made people feel when we were with them.
So here I go into this week- gonna do my best to make those loved ones feel LOVED. Want to join me in that venture?! Make room in your chaos for those you love- once time goes by, you can't get it back!
